Orshi Drozdik

(b. 1946 in Hungary) is an artist based in New York City and Budapest. Her work ranges from drawings and photographs through performances and installations to sculpture, painting, writing, teaching feminist theory and painting, and often deals extensively with gender representation. Drozdik has exhibited widely on both sides of the Atlantic, including in large restrospective exhibitions in New York, Budapest, Zagreb, Gyor, Vienna and Berlin.


In a response to Edit András’s recent article on Hungary’s contemporary art scene, artist Orshi Drozdik takes exception to the art historian who passes judgement on the artist without stopping to consider either the artist’s oeuvre or the true circumstances of the artist’s life.
